DeSoto Parish Winter Weather Update

The DPPJ road department is continuously monitoring the condition of parish roads.  As of 12:00 p.m., no serious problems are being reported on DPPJ roads but conditions are beginning to change.

State roads are having major problems, particularly north of Mansfield.  The problems are occurring in curves and overpasses, despite salting by the State.  We are being encouraged to stay at home. Of particular note are LA 175, 509, and 3276 plus U.S. 171.  Additionally, U.S. 84 in Stanley is having problems. All of these locations have crash reports and/or cars off the road.

DPPJ offices are closed today, and potentially tomorrow.  Tonight's Special Meeting has been rescheduled for Monday, January 22, 2018.
